The food is fabulous! Fresh fish of the day was snapper, mahi-mahi, marlin, sea bass. Prepared to perfection. The staff is so accommodating, hard working and pleasant. This was our second trip to Secrets at Papagayo and I would not hesitate to return.

For our first experience with an all-inclusive resort, Secrets hit it out of the park! Upon arrival, you're handed a cool, wet cloth for your neck and a glass of champagne. There are no "wristbands" needed here. You have access to everything. The property is immaculately maintained. Even the pool deck is moped frequently. The food....oh my,,, from the presentation...
